I have worked as a Histotech in a pathology laboratory for over 10 years, so I have extensive knowledge of the human body and its processes. I fell in love with CrossFit as soon as I was introduced to it and am now a Level 1 CrossFit Trainer! I have been doing it faithfully for approximately 7 years and I have seen my health and quality of life improve tremendously.As a type 1 Diabetic it is very important for me to stay active and CrossFit has allowed me to do that without getting sick of the "same old" workouts every day! I have 4 children ages 24, 17, 15, and 12. I have an additional child, much older, that I am blessed to call my husband. I enjoy seeing people reach their fitness goals and do things they thought they could never do! My favorite workouts involve heavy lifting and gymnastic movements. I love to try new things. I can be easily bribed with tacos and doughnuts.
